National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to recognize the impact of volunteer service and the power of volunteers to tackle society’s greatest challenges, to build stronger communities and be a force that transforms the world. Each year, we shine a light on the people and causes that inspire us to serve, recognizing and thanking volunteers who lend their time, talent and voice to make a difference in their communities.

National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each year, with thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week. Today, as people strive to lead lives that reflect their values, the expression of civic life has evolved. Whether online, at the office, or the local food bank; whether with a vote, a voice, or a wallet – doing good comes in many forms, and we recognize and celebrate them all.

Americans volunteer over 8.8 billion hours annually. Volunteers help organizations like yours fill critical gaps in service for nearly every community in the U.S. Without our nation’s volunteers, we wouldn’t have some of the programs that many communities rely on today.

National Volunteer Week began as–and continues to be–a national recognized week that formalizes the recognition of volunteers in our communities. Organizations of all scopes and sizes should take the time to thank our neighbors, strangers, friends, and family who selflessly give their time to help others. 

Here at CRESA, we would like to highlight all of our Public Safety Volunteers providing countless hours to the organizations they serve. Thank you to all of our ARES/Races, CERT, NOW, Fire Corps, Medical Reserve Corps, Search and Rescue, as well as our CRESA Public Education and EOC Volunteers who give tirelessly of themselves to better our community!

“THE SOLUTION TO EACH PROBLEM THAT CONFRONTS US BEGINS WITH AN INDIVIDUAL WHO STEPS FORWARD AND WHO SAYS, ‘I CAN HELP.’ “

— PRESIDENT GEORGE H.W. BUSH, FOUNDER OF POINTS OF LIGHT
